Anna to the Max

the epitome of quirkiness

I have wet ankles and a possible chance at romance with a wealthy Bedouin shepherd. January 15, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Anna @ 11:19 am

My ironing technique worked except for one small detail: my pants were still damp when I put them on this morning. Hence the first half of this post’s title.

As per the second half, while showing the class a website on an anthropology project in the Middle East my Human Geography professor mentioned a certain young shepherd who is very available (except for the fact that he already has one wife, but hey, the more the merrier). Apparently, being a shepherd is a pretty cushy job because he has a more than decent income. Seeing that none of the other girls in class were jumping at this opportunity, I quickly weighed my pros and cons:

Pros                                                                                                                        

Cute, woolly animals.                 

Warm climate where one never has to scrape her windshield and get chapped hands when already running late for her 8:00 class.

Cons

They say polygamy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

I’m a bit doubtful of my ability to build a fire out of manure and cook things over it, seeing as how I’ve barely mastered my own toaster.

I’m not a Muslim.

Needless to say, the only thing standing between me and wedded bliss is a one-way plane ticket to Jordan.

    So glad your list of cons is longer than the pros. If you need any help keeping it that way, I’ll be more than happy to help!
